24 December 2019As is the custom in Amritapuri, Christmas Eve saw a tableau of offerings in the form of dance, song and drama from Amma’s children who have come from all parts of the globe to spend their Christmas holidays with Amma. This year’s performances showcased the plethora of cultural traditions from which Amma’s children come, and demonstrated once again that Amma’s love transcends all boundaries as a universal language. The audience was treated first to a shadow puppet play about the birth of Christ and the arrival of the three wise men, who immediately recognized Jesus as a divine King.

In a more advanced context, bond order does not need to be an integer.Bond Order in Molecular Orbital TheoryIn molecular orbital theory, bond order is also defined as the difference, divided by two, between the number of bonding and antibonding electrons; this often, but not always, yields the same result.
For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/Fhn39You cannot talk with a Jehovah's Witness about the condition of the dead, without their bringing up Ecclesiastes 9:5. They are taught to use this verse to prove that the Bible supports the idea that the dead know nothing at all. In the 1985 book, "Reasoning From the Scriptures", on page 100, under the Heading "What Is the Condition of the Dead?", Ecclesiastes 9:5 is quoted as follows: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” (NWT) This certainly seems, if we are to take this verse literally, to prove that the dead have no conscious existence.

Delenda Carthago Est, Cato the Elder used to urge the Roman Senate. “Carthage must be destroyed.” In 146BC, the Roman general Scipio Aemilianus razed Carthage to the ground and sold its entire population into slavery. Carthaginians were never again to trouble Rome again.
In a perfect world, everyone would have food and shelter, and a true utopian society would be devoid of sexism, racism and other forms of oppression. But for most of the world's population, this perfect society just isn't possible. Communism is one proposed solution to these problems.Most people know what communism is at its most basic level. Simply put, communism is the idea that everyone in a given society receives equal shares of the benefits derived from labor.

In his speech accepting the Republican nomination for President, Donald Trump said (my emphasis):…our plan will put America First. Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo. As long as we are led by politicians who will not put America First, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect.Donald Trump’s insistence that we put “America First” hardly sounds harmful or irrational on its face. To be proud and protective of one’s country sounds like something good, even inevitable.
The "death of the PC" is not a new concept--ever since Internet-capable smartphones emerged on the market, a growing majority of analysts have been forecasting the demise of the traditional PC. Now, it appears that death is right around the corner, but what, exactly, is coming next?There's no one factor responsible for the death of PCs.

Siliguri India is not an industrial township but tops the list among Indian cities with most polluted air thought to be causing the death of birds Photo siliguritimes.com Around 50 black kites died in less than 24 hours in Siliguri, raising alarm among residents of this north Bengal city which also tops the list among Indian cities with most polluted air. Viscera samples have been sent to Kolkata for tests. West Bengal state tourism minister Goutam Deb visited a few places where the kites died. Residents of the Children's Park area in ward 12 of Siliguri Municipal Corporation (SMC) first spotted the dead birds on Friday evening. Till Saturday afternoon, 49 dead kites were found in College Para, Tikia Para, the district court campus and bungalows of the sub-divisional officer and judges posted in Siliguri. Nick Doley a veterinary doctor associated with Bengal Safari Park, said, "Some sick birds have been taken to the park for treatment and a post-mortem examination was conducted on some dead birds." Animesh Bose, the programme coordinator at Himalayan Nature and Adventure Foundation (HNAF), said, "Death of so many black kites is really alarming. This comes at a time when Siliguri's air quality is said to be at its worst." Data recently collected from north Bengal by Central Pollution Control Board showed that Siliguri's air quality index (AQI) was 343.6 while the same stood at 258.6 in Delhi between February 8 and February 13. The findings put Siliguri among one the most polluted urban centres in India. Experts hold old diesel vehicles, including three-wheelers, responsible for the rising pollution since Siliguri is not an industrial township. Incidentally, the Mahananda, which flows through the city, is also among the most polluted rivers in the state. Alarmed by the pollution in the Mahananda, the National Green Tribunal last year took suo motu cognizance and issued a notice to the state pollution control board and SMC. "The river is more polluted now," Bose claimed. "Three years ago, many black kites died a similar death and we still don't know the exact reason," Bose said. "The laboratory tests were never made public," he alleged. Wildlife on the brink. Biodiversity is in crisis as a comprehensive global appraisal of the damage starts today but is it too little too late?Planet has crossed the tipping pointBy 2020 two thirds of all wild animals who once lived in the world will be dead.The world's primates face an "extinction crisis" with 60% of species now threatened with extinctionUnprecedented death of millions of tons of marine life around the world’s oceans and waterways In just three years’ time, the World will have lost two-thirds of all wild animals. This amazing statistic from The Living Planet Index goes on: The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends. The analysis, the most comprehensive to date, indicates that animal populations plummeted by 58% between 1970 and 2012, with losses on track to reach 67% by 2020. Researchers from WWF and the Zoological Society of London compiled the report from scientific data and found that the destruction of wild habitats, hunting and pollution were to blame. Starting Saturday, a comprehensive, global appraisal of the damage, and what can be done to reverse it, will be conducted in Colombia. "The science is clear: biodiversity is in crisis globally," WWF director general Marco Lambertini told AFP ahead of a crucial meeting of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). "We depend on biodiversity for the food we eat, the water we drink, the clean air we breathe, the stability of weather patterns, and yet our actions are pushing nature's ability to sustain us to the brink." According to The Daily Mail, there are an estimated 8.7 million plant and animal species on our planet and about 86 percent of land species and 91 percent of sea species remain undiscovered. Of the ones we do know, 1,204 mammals, 1,469 bird, 1,215 reptiles, 2,100 amphibia, and 2,386 fish species are considered threatened. Also threatened are 1,414 insects, 2,187 molluscs, 732 crustacea, 237 coral, 12,505 plant, 33 mushrooms, and six brown algae species. Earth is enduring the sixth mass species extinction which is plunging the planet into 'global crisis', scientists have warned. Scientists warn humanity's voracious consumption and wanton destruction is to blame for the event, which is the first major extinction since the dinosaurs. Two species of vertebrate, animals with a backbone, have gone extinct every year, on average, for the past century. Currently, around 41 percent of amphibian species and more than a quarter of mammals are threatened with extinction. Scientists and government envoys will gather as the 128-member IPBES to dot the I's and cross the T's on five monumental assessment reports designed to inform global policymaking into the future. Compiled over the last three years, the reports will provide the most up-to-date picture of the health of the world's plants, animals and soil. The diagnosis will be unveiled in two parts at the summit in Colombia's second-largest city, Medellin. First, on March 23, the IPBES will simultaneously release separate assessments for the four regions into which it has divided the world -- the Americas, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Europe and Central Asia. A fifth report, due March 26, will focus on the global state of the soil, which is fast being degraded through pollution, forest-destruction, mining, and unsustainable farming methods that deplete its nutrients.AFP REPORT HEREHome
The killing of Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri, was no anomaly: As we reported yesterday, Brown is one of at least four unarmed black men who died at the hands of police in the last month alone. Therearemanymorecases from years past. As Jeffrey Mittman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Missouri chapter put it in a statement of condolence to Brown’s family, “Unarmed African-American men are shot and killed by police at an alarming rate. This pattern must stop.”But quantifying that pattern is difficult.
